An office appropriate outfit doesn’t have to be boring. Add these fabulous pieces to your wardrobe for a professional look that’s fashionable too.

1. Statement blazer. Blazers are great for the office. But while black and navy are classic choices, they can be a tad boring.

Change things up by opting for a statement blazer featuring a bold colour or print instead. Good choices include monochrome stripes, a block primary colour or a floral print. Let your blazer be the focal point of your look by keeping the rest of your outfit simple.

The good news is that a blazer can be worn with a dress, slacks or a skirt too, so you’ll get loads of use out of it.

2. Beautiful blouse. Yes, button-down shirts are the more traditional office choice, but a blouse makes for a more fun and feminine look. Choose one that features a softer fabric, such as chiffon, lace or silk, as well as an interesting detail like ruffles, buttons or statement sleeves. Remember to choose a blouse that flatters your figure for the best results.

3. Textured trousers. Trousers to the office are a staple for us all, but it’s time to think beyond your usual straight-leg black pants. Look for a pair that features a textured fabric and update your look in an instant. Fabrics such as tweed and jacquard are great options.

Alternatively, you can opt for a print such as houndstooth or stripes to create the illusion of texture. If you’ve chosen to wear printed trousers, keep the rest of your outfit simple.
